Hi all -- long time lurker but first time poster -- thanks for all the insights along the way!

I interviewed over a week ago, and thought it went very well. My interviewer hasn't yet submitted feedback. After how many days would it be appropriate to send a reminder to the interviewer?

for all the admits, anyone received financial aid also?

Also, i see that CBS doesn't give non-co-signer private loans to int'l students.... I am an international candidate but have worked in the US for the past 4 years and have a solid credit history, so I'm wondering if I can convince CBS to go with a non-co-signer loan.... thoughts anybody? :(

I think it is very difficult, if even possible. The official reason CBS doesn't carry out non-co-signer international student loan is due to university policy. Columbia is financing its new campus and need certain credit rating. Obviously international student loan will harm its credit profile compared to domestic student loan.

Waiting on feedback, and the decision!

Related question -

Really out of personal interest/curiosity (I doubt I would be in the pool getting it) --> Columbia merit scholarships?

How do they figure them out?

When do they give them out?

Does that section on the app on how you plan to finance your mba affect whether an applicant gets something? (before someone says it... YES - I know what MERIT means, just wondering if it truly has zero consideration on what is put in those boxes slash financial means)



Also on a similar note -
Does anyone know what the avg breakdown or typical breakdowns are of funding for CBS students for MBAs? (cash - debtfederal - debtprivate - etc)
Alternatively, anyone have a guess of the typical breakdowns?

not sure if this has been addressed before, but roughly what percent of the slots are filled by ED applicants?

Email = waitlist/rejection
Call = acceptance

Yeah, it does seem like there has been shorter turnaround times during october though. I'm expecting the worst and hoping for the best.
